Hannibal Mejbri and Will Fish send messages after making Manchester United debuts

Two Manchester United players made their full debuts against Wolves.

Under-23 player of the season Hannibal Mejbri came off the bench to play the final 10 minutes of the season.

Defender Will Fish came on in the 90th minute. The pair became the 15th and 16th academy players handed debuts by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Hannibal, 18, was delighted to make his debut, and sent a message out to supporters.


Young teammate Will Fish, 18, also expressed his gratitude at making his first team bow.

Shola Shoretire made his debut earlier this year and he was delighted to come off the bench and make another appearance.

Amad started the game and was unlucky not to register an assist after playing Dan James through in the second half, only for the Welshman to shoot wide.

Amad reached out to pal Hannibal to congratulate him on making his debut.

Solskjaer was thrilled with the way all of the young players contributed.

He told the club website: “You’d like to say you that you would see some of these in the future, of course. I think it was a game in the spirit of Man United, Sir Alex and Sir Matt, that you give kids the chance. 

“My job is to do my best for Man United, and I felt today, as I said before, it was a Man United-spirited performances with loads of kids that made their debuts, Elanga scored his first goal, so today I was really proud of them”

Below is a list of all the 16 academy players to be handed their debuts by Solskjaer.

There is so much talent in the under-23s and under-18s that the list will continue to grow next season…
